Rivian is on a mission to keep the world adventurous forever. This goes for the emissions-free Electric Adventure Vehicles we build, and the curious, courageous souls we seek to attract.
As a company, we constantly challenge what’s possible, never simply accepting what has always been done. We reframe old problems, seek new solutions and operate comfortably in areas that are unknown. Our backgrounds are diverse, but our team shares a love of the outdoors and a desire to protect it for future generations.
The Rivian Automation Controls Development team aims to be at the forefront of innovation and technology in automation controls. Our mission is to research new platforms, utilize advanced hardware, and push the limits of technology to build a world-class automation platform that minimizes development time, reduces commissioning time, and eliminates unplanned downtime.
We are looking to accelerate our development by leveraging virtual commissioning and advanced simulation practices. We are looking for talented, forward-thinking engineers that will contribute to shape the virtual engineering and commissioning company vision. You will focus on developing code as well as testing and simulation for digital manufacturing equipment and its sub-assembly. You will work and define interfaces, workflow, and pipelines to link the PLC, Robotic, Vision and Controls equipment with Simulation and Digital Twins, in order to reach a full suite of automated testing. Those features will also drive requirements for internally built equipment and for vendors designing manufacturing equipment for Rivian. Together we will create tools to automate steps of the development and deployment process such as historical regression testing and hardware-in-the-loop testing.
As a Virtual Commissioning Engineer, you will work with cross functional teams to design, validate and deploy systems to achieve complete production line simulation. You will closely work with the Controls, DevOps, and Digital Manufacturing team to drive Digital Twin standardization in Rivian factories. You will have an incredible opportunity for growth as we have set ambitious goals of creating a state-of-the-art system to enforce CI/CD methodologies in the development and integration phases of complex industrial and robotic control system to ensure successful deployment. You will contribute by helping develop automated unit testing in both a simulated environment and with hardware-in-the-loop, automating deployment and auditing procedures, greenlight releases deployment and maintain multi-system build and test pipelines.
These are exciting times for the Automation Controls Development team and we need your unique talents to help us accomplish our lofty goals and ensure that Rivian continues to Keep the World Adventurous Forever.
